Help Your School Excel with Excedrin + Giveaway
Can you believe it’s time for our kids to go back to school? Weird how it’s both exciting and stressful at the same time. New teachers, classes, schools, and schedules can create a headache for parents – whether they have one or six kids in school. Part of the headache was just waiting for the schedules to come out. We couldn’t find out who our kids’ teachers were going to be until the day before school. This definitely made it a little more challenging getting ready for the first day of school.
Recently, Excedrin conducted a survey among 229 American parents with at least one child attending school this year. Here is what they found:
– 69% of parents, who have at least one child in school this coming year, say they are excited for their child’s first day of school. That doesn’t change the fact that 44% of parents also say they expect to get a headache during the back to school season.
– More than one-third of parents cite getting themselves (41%) and their children (43%) back on a schedule at the top of the list of things that might cause their headaches during the back to school season.
– More than one-third (35%) of parents say shopping for school supplies might give them a headache. With all the pencils, folders and notebooks, parents should remember to put Excedrin® on their back to school shopping list.
– A large majority of parents (85%) think their schools are in need of new or upgraded supplies such as pencils and paper and computers or software and gym/sporting equipment. And that’s because with every purchase of Excedrin®, parents can enter for a chance to win $10,000 for their child’s school.
